on the snowden controversy we turn to major garrett on martha's vineyard where the president is wrapping up the first full day of his vacation. major, what does the white house make of this? >> well, the president's spokespeople have told me, jeff that they don't believe the president said anything inflammatory to poison the well on a potential snowden trial. they say the same thing is true of the justice department. they have no control with members-- what members of congress may say about this case. they also say the evidence is clear, at least from their perspective that felonies were committed here and edward snowden if he comes back to the united states will receive a fair trial. the other grievances aired by the snowed enfamily that the president's whistle-blower protections weren't sufficient, the white house says they're the first ones ever put in place by a president of the united staelingts and should have been tested before edward snowden released these classified documents outside of the system. so those two key elements are what the white house says can be done and should have
